Looking to paint my grill.

I'm looking to paint my grill. I did some research, but I couldn't find how many cans to use. I am planning on painting my grill to match the body color of my '95.


*It's the best picture I could find right now of the grill/color of my truck*

If I can't find the color I want, I may just end up painting it black.

So my question is, how many cans of paint, and how many cans of clear should I buy? I'm looking to do this some time this week.

Yeah, I was just going to use the spray can ones. I don't know if the ones I'm going to buy come in those tiny touch up ones, or its one big can.

One can of each should be plenty, however you may want to scuff it up a bit with something like 400-600 grit sand paper, thern hit it with a primer first.
